THE REIGN OF AMON (2Chronicles 33:21-25. Comp. 2Kings 21:19-26).

(21) Amon was two and twenty years old.--So 2Kings 21:19, which adds his mother's name and parentage.

Verse 21. - The long reign of Manasseh of fifty-five years - a signal and merciful instance of space given for repentance - ended, his death met him presumably at the age of sixty-seven. The son who succeeded him was twenty-two years old, born therefore not before his father was forty-five years old. This may be an indication that it was indeed not one son only whom Manasseh "caused to pass through the fire" (ver. 6). He emulated the sins of the former life of his father, but did not, like him, repent. It will be noted that in ver. 19 of the parallel his mother's name is given as "Meshulle-meth, the daughter of Haruz, of Jotbah," of whom nothing is known.
